A visiting student is one who has completed at least one semester and is actively enrolled at another institution with plans to return to that university in the fall. Visiting students are not required to submit an application fee or transcripts. At the end of the session, students must request that their grades be reported by transcript to their respective schools. This is only for undergraduate students and financial aid is not available. Note that visiting students may need to submit a transcript if a particular course requires proof of a pre-requisite.

Those with fewer than 24 hours will also need to submit high school transcripts reflecting composite ACT scores.
